Young Jacksdale Motorcycle racer Kyle Ryde is still in need of some urgent support for the 2011 season.

This year is going to be a busy year for the 13-year-old, with his selection into the Moto GP Redbull Rookies squad and also the British 125cc Championship to contest.

For this season he will be on board last year’s championship wining bike of top tuner Ryan Saxilby.

His parents Sean and Janine have been working relentlessly to raise sufficient funds in order to enable Kyle to have the best available chance of both impressing the world stage at Grand Prix racing and also at home with the British Championship.

Sean said: “Events have been held locally and this is much appreciated by Kyle, Team 77 and of course Janine and I, however, in order to comfortably be able to succeed in both of these tasks, more funding is required by the team.

“So if anyone is able in any way to help financially with support for a local, young, up and coming star, then please look at contacting us as we have to find around £30,000 to fund this year’s racing season.

“We have managed to secure nearly half of the required money, but are desperately seekina local substantial sponsor for the rest of our needs and they are constantly thinking of new ways to raise the money to keep Kyle on a bike.”

As well as looking for a local business sponsor and also for the avid race fans who want to give something back to the sport, Kyle Ryde Racing have ‘Team 77’.

For £77 a year this is what you get for your money:

Updates via e-mail, a free calendar (up until the middle of February), your name on the Team 77 website and also on the race transporter and sponsor board which will be displayed at all British Superbike meetings around the UK.

Anyone interested can call Sean on 07528 623319 or Janine on 07811 145579.
